When the Logic guy imports our recorded tracks (recorded in different DAW) into his Logic session, Logic seems to automatically try to fit the imported tracks to Logic’s default tempo 120 (while the recording is made in tempo 85).
In EQ mode the channels represent the 4 parameters for each band, 2 bands per “page”.
You would probably be happier with the “Alternate EQ Edit mode”. Press and hold “EQ”. The V-Pots can be pressed to choose the mode. Press V-Pot 8 to get into
Frequency/Gain Channel view.
In this mode, you can edit the frequency and gain parameters for all EQ bands of the selected channel strip. Each pair of channel strips corresponds to one EQ band.
The mode display shows FG.
V-Pots 1 to 8 control the frequency of EQ bands 1 to 8.
Mute buttons 1 to 8 control the bypass of EQ bands 1 to 8.
Faders 1 to 8 control the gain of EQ bands 1 to 8.
Note: The faders form a frequency response curve in this mode, if the EQ bands have ascending frequency values.
Tip: You can edit another channel strip’s EQ without leaving this view by selecting the channel strip in Logic Pro or by pressing the appropriate SELECT button on the Mackie Control.

Or you can simply put the “Vintage Console EQ” on the channel and use “Smart Controls” “Shift”+”INST” buttons. You get close to what you ask for.
I’m thrilled to discover “Frequency/Gain Channel” view, and the “Frequency/Gain Mixer” view.
1) Took me about half an hour to realize that I had to hit the EQ twice to bring up all the parameters
2) Apple have decided that you need an 8 band eq (incl low/high cut) with 4 parameters (incl on/off) for each band. Hence you would need 32 knobs to control the entire EQ for a single channel strip. I have to lean over, read the small scribble, perhaps flip to the next “page” before I can do any adjustments
This is the forum post that started me digging into the X-Touch and how it performs in Logic Pro X.
I can now go back, review the discussion, and make cogent comment.
I have track stacks, summing, for things like DRUMS, VOX, what have you. I arrange them such that the “Arrange” window as well as the mixer has things in order like VOX, v1, v2, v3… where I can collapse VOX and only deal with the plugins and faders on the bus.
That’s nice. I like it.
I am losing track of where I get involved in discussions and question/answer dialogue.
Time to start posting blog entries with links to the topics. Not clear if these links work for non members of the forums, but hey, this is for me 😉
